A posh little nook in centre of Amsterdam, with an unassuming front hiding the finest tea and cake in the city. I had the luxury high tea, which contained enough food to send me into a cake coma. Ask if they have their celeriac and rosemary soup, it was amazing. But as it's all locally grown it may... read more

This is a great place to unwind from the near hysteria of the surrounding shopping district in the very center of Amsterdam. In an alley of the pedestrian zone this great little shop caters to the connaisseurs of better cakes and snadwiches. Tea is served the way it should be and everything is done with respect for food and a... More

Though this place is rated so highly and the place is sooo hard to get a reservation for, I still don't see the fuss about it. I didn't find it particularly special and it definitely did not have that 'wow' factor for me, though the staff were friendly.

Had an early lunch with my husband and daughter. Fresh and tasty sandwiches, full of flavour. Everything is made with love! Slow food at its best. Very nice staff. Enjoyed this lunch and would definitely come back.

We arrived at 10 just as they were opening to get the only walk in table they had left for the day. The location, service and food were just fantastic :) We all had some version of their eggs Benedict with brioche and left very happy!

It was almost closing time at 6pm, so they only had drinks and cakes. Delicious cinnamon and cheesecake pie! Lovely decoration and tablesets. Very nice and thoughtful service

Gartine is an absolute wonder. They take the freshest food and treat it lovingly. I've tried about half of their menu over the years, and am always impressed. Whether you're in the mood for something rich (like the boar sausage) or something light (like one of their quiches), you can be sure it will be delightful. Their desserts are also... More

My boyfriend and I were super lucky to happen here exactly when a party was leaving the only table upstairs!! We had a nice breakfast feast with yoghurt, french toast and pancakes with berries. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is adorable. We decided to come back the day after for high tea and reserved a table. We... More

Amazing breakfast! Try the french toasts and the pancakes, they are delicious! The service is very nice! If I come back to Amsterdam this will be the first place I'll go for breakfast!
